Sorry - at this time I am only taking in Tag Heuer, Rolex, and Omega, watches and watches that must be returned to me under my repair warranty. Please call me concerning the repair of your watch before sending it to me.
I take watches in for repair by mail only. There are some watches that I cannot acquire parts for, or that are too worn out to repair, so please call me, Stephen Thomas, at 503- 239-1859 or e-mail me at email@example.com to inquire about repair of your watch. For my address and a form to fill out for sending your watch, click on the Sending Your Watch link at the top of the page. When e-mailing, please include your phone number and turn off your spam blocker so my reply will get through.
I do not sell parts, or do appraisals. Please do not ask.
If you wind your watch and it ticks or it's an auto-wind watch (wound by your wrist movements), please go to the wind up watch estimate page.
If it has been over a year since you had a battery put in your watch, and you haven't gotten it wet, it probably has a dead battery, replacement of which is usually $20.00 plus shipping. In most cases if you suspect it is just a dead battery it is usually better to try a local shop for battery replacement before you mail it to me.
Battery powered watches have a lot less power in them than wind up watches, and
they won't continue to run (and wear themselves out) with dirt in them as a mechanical
watch will; they'll just stop. When your battery powered watch is new, you may get
as many as seven years from a battery. As the watch ages and the oil gets gummy, you'll
get fewer and fewer years from each battery until a new battery won't make it run.
